  1. 2km daily walk, and bodyweight circuit.
  2. This was the first thought that popped into my head. Catholic for now, moving on to public high school. Completely speculative, of course.
  3. Tried a 30 minute Strength, Cardio, and Pilates Core Workout. I was not entirely able to keep up but it was okay. A little heavy on the pushups. Not that I couldn't use strength, but I have "swimmer's shoulders" and really don't need a ton of that. Maybe a bit too much of a stretch for now, will keep looking.
  4. I believe it is a spider plant that I am currently murdering but I've moved it upstairs and will repot. Fingers crossed. Yes about the grow lights. It is now legal here, up to four plants per household for personal use. I'd probably kill that, too, though.
  5. Yes, I've often thought this house was built and situated with summer in mind. It is nice and shady then. But winter can be long and ideally it would have been placed a little differently for light, other than pesky things like geography and services.
  6. My library has that one! I've requested it, along with Indoor Plant Gardening for Canada, 37 Houseplants Even You Can't Kill, and How Not to Kill Your Houseplant: survival tips for the horticulturaly challenged. ☺️
  7. Just what I am looking for? lol Now that all the kids have moved out, as of 2 weeks ago, I have access to windows with light. Of course, no one goes up there for long periods of time, until we start repurposing the space. I would love plants that can survive down in our actual living space which, with a covered deck to the east, no south facing windows, just north and west windows (the west under a steep rock bluff) sunlight is at a premium. So actual low light. You guys have given some good advice on that front, so thank you.
  8. But truly, it's about the cute pots!! Okay, I will try repotting, thank you for the encouragement.
  9. You know those cute little plants you buy at the grocery store/gift shop/craft fair? They are in a plastic tub inside a cute little metal container. I just kill those. They don't really drain. The plant still looks dry, but the soil is submerged with the least amount of water. So I bought the spray bottle, but I don't know. I think I've tortured my latest victim beyond recovery.
  10. I've had outdoor flowers for the past three summers and done pretty well! I think I need to stop buying (or getting gifted) houseplants with no tags. I can't even search for help since I have no idea what they are. Well wait actually, with today's technology I probably could. Huh.
  11. So there's hope? That is good news. Thank you! Watering spike? Yeah, I have a timer set on my phone for Sunday afternoons. After I water, they still seem too dry yet they also seem to be sitting in too much water. I bought a spray bottle for misting. I use either bottled water or outside tap water, not our softened water because I'm certain that is way too salty. I will persist with the two still clinging to life, fingers crossed. Any other tips welcome!!
  12. But I don't have to dust real plants. Hmm, not sure which is worse now.
